Catalan Mushrooms With Garlic & Parsley

"from Fine Cooking - by Bill Devin. Serve these as a starter or perhaps as an accompaniment to the baked chicken. Leftovers are great on pizza or added to pasta sauce."

Ready In:




  • Put the mushrooms in a large bowl of cold water to soak for 10 minute Rinse them well and then drain.
  • Heat a large sauté pan with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat. Add the drained mushrooms to the dry pan, cover immediately, and cook until all the moisture from the mushrooms is leached out, about 20 minute You'll know this has happened when you lift the lid for a peek and see the once-dry pan filled with liquid.
  • Remove the lid, raise the heat to medium high, and boil until the liquid evaporates and the mushrooms begin to sizzle in the dry pan but haven't browned; they'll have shrunk considerably and should be firm when poked with a fork. Lower the heat to medium and stir in 1 Tbs. of the olive oil, the parsley, and the garlic. Sauté, stirring frequently, until the garlic softens, another 3 to 4 minute Transfer the mushrooms to a serving bowl, stir in the remaining 3 Tbs. olive oil, and season with salt to taste (I like to salt them liberally). Serve while hot.

  2. YAY! I was just going to post this yummy recipe and here it is! I first saw it in the Cooking Fresh magazine, 2005. I make them all the time, they go great with grilled dishes. Sometimes I add fresh juice from half of a lemon when I add the parsley and garlic. Thanks for posting!
